Quilt With Us

Somehow I wound up on the challenge committee for both the guilds I'm in here in Dublin. Since the only challenge I've ever done was modeled on the Keepsake Quilts ones, I could really use some help with ideas. This year, one group did a Quiltville mystery guild, while the other is doing a 3 fabric quilt. I'm not the only one on either committee (thank goodness!) and the ladies are so nice, so I don't have to worry about messing up. However, it has meant a lot to me to be accepted and included in the two guilds and all their activities, and I would like to do a good job with my input. Thanks for your help--i know I can count on my friends here!

Our Guild in Langley, B. C. is now doing a door challenge. Any door you want to do - should be very interesting. Think it's called, "Making a Grand Entrance." A lot of possibilities here. It's not due

until June so can't tell you what all was done. We did have the paint chip challenge once also and that

worked out well.

how are you doing with coming up with challenges for your guilds? Will be interested in what you decide to do. As I am reading the comments here I am getting some ideas for our own guild. Thanks everyone.

We had a challenge once--only 2 colors, but as many shades of the color as you like. So, red runs from pale pink to maroon.

There's also the crayon one. Dump a bunch of crayon is a shopping bag and have each guild member draw out 2 or 3 crayons. Their challenge has to be made with these colors and maybe you can allow them to add one more fabric of their choice.

I presented the "Paint Chip" challenge to my group today - huge response!! They loved it!! We're going to swap the bags of fabric at our June meeting and have all summer to work on the challenge and bring them back to our first meeting in Septmeber!!

I am so tickled at all these ideas. I may volunteer to be on the challenge committees again next year!

Joana I took part in our guild brown bag challenge it was the same as Barb. We all enjoyed it and the items were various.

Joana, My LQS did an "Ugly Fabric" challenge, with a theme "Things we can't live without". We had a ball! The shop owner picked out 5 of the "ugliest" fabrics she could find, we were allowed to add up to 6 more and had to use at least a 5" piece of all the challenge fabrics. Quilts had to be at least 22" square but no larger than twin bed size. It was AMAZING what people came up with! The quilt on my page, "All good things in life find their way to the refrigerator door!" was my final project for that challenge.

I really enjoyed the paint chip challenge..that is my pic. Also did one this year based on dots & strips. Had to be 80% of the combination. We are doing one this year that is a mini, must fit into an 10x13" frame.
